Commenting on Insights Articles

In summary, the conversation discusses a problem with the comment edit window on an insights article. The standard tools were missing and the page did not refresh after posting a comment. The issue was resolved by finding the article's thread in the normal forums. A suggested solution is to replace the "Post Comment" button with a button that says "Visit The Comments Thread". One of the participants also mentions clicking the "Discuss in the Community" button at the bottom of the Insight to access the thread in the forum. The specific article that sparked this discussion was "Blaming Government for Teacher and Scientist Failures of Integrity".

I just read an insights article, and then clicked on "Post Comment" at the bottom. The comment edit window that came up was sans the standard tools usual when posting to a thread. I mean the icon toolbar that appears above the edit box; they didn't appear.

I wrote a comment, and clicked post, but the page didn't refresh. So then I looked up the thread on the comments on the article, and aha my post had been posted after all.

It sounds like some GUI problems when you start with a link to an Insights article, as opposed to finding the article's thread in the normal forums.

A simple solution, might be to replace the list of comments plus "Post Comment" button at the bottom of an Insights article, with a button that says "Visit The Comments Thread".

Best bet is to click the "Discuss in the Community" button at the bottom of the Insight which will take you to the thread in the forum. What Insight was this? Perhaps I forgot to add the button.
